Happy Holidays from One Grower to Another

Fresh Faces

As the faces of UpShoot, Jim and I love connecting with our grower partners on a regular basis.  We believe our hands-on personal relationships are part of what differentiates our company.

While a bad pun, UpShoot is growing. We’re adding more breeders and their plants as well as garden related product clients on a regular basis.
Behind-the-scenes our team has expanded and there may be occasions where you’ll be hearing from or interacting with these fresh faces. I’m pleased to introduce you to the UpShoot team members who are helping us UpShoot reach new gardening heights!

I’m proud to say that LCN Selections Sugar Tyme® Crabapple is one of the 2014 plants chosen by Great Garden Picks, specifically for its fragrant flowers and fresh scent.

Malus Sugar Tyme
After over 30 years on the market, this spring blooming beauty is still a fan favorite, prized not only for its snow white fragrant flowers but also for its long lasting red fall fruit and most importantly because it remains one of the top rated disease resistant crabapples on the market today.
